A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it takes 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle every single one of them easily.
